Target Audience
Pediatrics

Overview
Description
Pediatric medicine is evolving on a daily basis and it can be difficult for a general pediatric practitioner to remain up-to-date on new standards of care, therapies, and medications. The goal of this course is to fulfill the need in the practicing pediatric community to increase and improve competence in the field of pediatric medicine and to integrate best practices based on evidencebased medicine and current research. Dr. Ngo reached out to division leaders to discuss potential topics related to their subspecialty that may be of particular interest to the general practitioner. This will assist in closing the gap between community and academic medicine. Reasons to refer to a tertiary care center will also be discussed.

Who Should Attend
This activity is intended for pediatricians, general practitioners, nurse practitioners, PAs, pediatric subspecialists, pediatric residents, pediatric subspecialty fellows, family practitioners and other allied health professionals interested in the care of infants, children and adolescents.
